Interaction '10 Conference iPhone app. survey Requesting your input

Hey everyone,

My name is Austin Brown. I am a Senior Industrial Design Student at
Savannah College of Art & Design, and minoring in Interaction Design.

My group and I are working on creating an iPhone app for the
Interaction '10 Conference as a project in our Interactive Product
Design class. We want the conference and the app to be all about you
all, so we need your input.

The survey is meant to be a breeze, so don't think to hard about it,
and definitely don't work too hard on it. We're not looking for
statistically meaningful results so much as opnions, feelings, ideas,
etc.

nice read: On Apple's connection with the consumer continued...

"Yes and perhaps thats the nature of business - make money, save
money, profit and hopefully along the way do good. Perhaps business
needs to change its model in a sustainable world? (but that's
another discussion) But ... Why can't a business focus on all 3? Why
are these mutually exclusive? Why not find a balance of all 3?"

Business can do that, but they don't need UCD for that.

Toward a search dominant wayfinding paradigm(worth it?)

I agree that search on many corporate and government sites is terrible (and
lags far behind e-commerce). It doesn't have to stay that way, but in most
cases it will require a significant investment in technology and design to
make search better. That's why framing it as a strategic shift towards a
search-centered experience is worthwhile. That said, of course other modes
of interaction such as asking and browsing will remain important. They all
need to work together.

Toward a search dominant wayfinding paradigm (worthit?)

I agree that large corporate (and .edu and .gov) websites should at least
seriously consider migrating to a search-centered strategy. Browsing rarely
scales well. Site search is increasingly a choice of first resort. And,
that's only when users don't parachute deep into the site via Google. This
means that every destination is also a gateway. We can enhance the value of
these findable and social objects through attention to IxD, IA and SEO.
